BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - Dec 5, 2012) - Dr. James Vogel, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Baltimore, says demand for liposuction has risen dramatically with the development of new techniques designed to enhance both the safety of the treatment and quality of the results. With almost 35 percent of his practice dedicated to liposuction, Dr. Vogel says he has been utilizing a contemporary approach called tumescent liposuction for reducing blood loss and maximizing fat removal.
Dr. Vogel says tumescent liposuction is designed to provide his Baltimore plastic surgery patients an advanced and effective solution to problem areas of fat. The state-of-the-art technique can be used to target multiple areas on the body, including:
- Breast area
- Upper back
Dr. Vogel says patients who have had difficulty losing stubborn fat pockets can achieve a more sculpted figure and greater self-esteem through advanced liposuction. Moreover, he says the tumescent technique amplifies these results by offering some key benefits:
- Reduced blood loss during the procedure
- Maximized fat removal
- A more rapid recovery
Dr. Vogel says the ideal candidate for tumescent liposuction is a generally healthy patient who is moderately above their desired body weight with localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Through comprehensive education on procedure expectations as well as the mental and physical recovery process, he says he strives to ensure each patient receives the proper care. While the entire treatment only takes one to two hours, Dr. Vogel says patients will need to take three to five days off work and can often resume their normal exercise routines within three to six weeks.
Additionally, Dr. Vogel says the combination of liposuction and breast augmentation at his Baltimore practice is a common procedure for women seeking a "mommy makeover." As with any medical procedure, whether it be body contouring, breast augmentation, or tummy tuck surgery, he encourages every patient considering cosmetic enhancement to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing treatment. The Baltimore plastic surgeon says by taking the time to research one's practice, patients can ensure their results are achieved through the highest quality procedures and the safest techniques.
